Cards For The Men In Your Life

Here are a few smples of cards that were made with men in mind .

This card was made from stamps from Indigo Blu and some lovely hanging lanters from Prima with papers from the Scrap Yard collection fromKaiserCraft.

Lin Browns stamps ELB 17 was used for this card on a 6" x 6" craft card with 1" cut of the bottom to create a 5" x  6" card and using Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads to paint the owls and create the background and with a little Glossy Accents to make the eyes pop!!!

We have used the little owl punch from Woodware for this one and some little branch swirls from Lin Browns ELB 17 stamp all put together with a brayered scrap created on our Paper Artsy playday onto a 4" x 4" craft card. A Greeting of you choice could be added to the front if you wish.

This card was made with a 6" x  6" craft card with the front trimmed from corner to corner and papers from the Scrap Yard collection were used for the clocks and background. We added some screw brads and small brads to finish.
